Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to postpone our face-to-face community events. We'll resume these activities once it's safe and legal to do so.
In the meantime, we are gearing up to offer some creeky webinars. If you have suggestions for webinar topics, please get in touch. And if you haven't already signed up, please subscribe to our events notifications. This way we can let you know about our webinars and can notify you when our site-based events start up again.
Despite the pandemic, our dedicated staff are busy working, in many different and creative ways, to care for Merri Creek.
Our Ecological Restoration Team is still getting out to actively manage indigenous vegetation at a range of sites along Merri Creek and elsewhere. Team members are travelling to sites individually, in separate vehicles, and are maintaining proper distancing whilst out in the fresh air. We've begun our autumn ecological burns of native grasslands, with more to come over the next few weeks. Scheduled plantings will be held over until later this year, with the hope that once again community can be involved. Otherwise our own staff will do the planting.
After a massive effort from our in-house IT expert, our staff involved in education, engagement, planning and administration are set up to work from home. They are making a great effort to keep things running smoothly and to communicate with you about all things Merri.
